Bollocks to Baking: Posh Pick and Mix

Need a thank-you, birthday or sorry-you're-leaving present for someone, but just haven't got the time to whip out the rolling pin and knock 'em up your speciality biscuits or cakes? Fret no further. Those innovative scamps at Posh Pick and Mix have come up with a solution so sweet - pun intended, of course - that you'll never again need to do that last-minute panicked circuit of nearby card shops and supermarkets in search of a suitable gift.

Instead, just tell them what size jar you want, who it's for and your message, and they'll send you a beautifully-packaged, personalised sugar-filled festival of your favourite retro sweets. Yep, all the old-skool classics like gummy rings, candy watches, lovehearts, gumballs, coke bottles and boiled eggs.

Best of all, you can choose what sweets to include. So, if you're making one for someone who obsesses over white mice, caramel cups and chocolate fudge, but detests gobstoppers, dolly mixtures and cola cubes, you can make sure they get their dream selection. Helpfully, the site also advises which ones are suitable for sweet-toothed vegetarians, although those options are limited. The bespoke labels give them a thoughtful, personal touch, and I'll definitely be keeping mine (labelled 'Jane's Sweet Jar') for future use, and as a souvenir of the sugar-crazed joy it induced. Prices start from £15, and P&P's free.
